Ways to Pray

Praying the Names of God

One of the ways God reveals himself to us is through his many different names found in Scripture. His names tell us about his character. They inform us about His attributes, His faithfulness, and His power. God loves you so much that he wants you to know Him intimately. Praying the names of God is one way to grow your affections for Him and your confidence in Him.

Praying the Armor of God

 The Word of God commands us to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power (Eph. 6:10-18). We daily stand firm against the devil’s schemes by putting on our spiritual armor. It is as important to dress spiritually each day as it is to dress physically. So declare daily that you are obeying God’s command to stand in all the armor available to intercessory soldiers in the battles we face.

There is something about coming to a designated place of prayer that invites people to draw away from the world in order to meet with God. The Carmel Prayer Room is a place where individuals, families, small groups or prayer teams can gather for prayer, to learn how to seek His face and where God is welcome to breathe into the lives of those who desire His presence.

The first Sunday of each month, the Elders and their wives are available in the Prayer Room between worship services to pray with and for you.  

  • Sunday Evening: On Sunday evenings at 5:00pm, a group led by Charles Cranford gathers in the Prayer Room (all are welcome). For details, contact Brad Ferguson.
  • Daughters of the King: All women of Carmel are invited to join together for regular, informal prayer gatherings on Thursday mornings at 11:45am. Have questions or want more information? Click here.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:6-7
